Canadian baritone Tyler Duncan enjoys international renown for bringing consummate musicianship, vocal beauty and interpretive insight to recital, concert and–increasingly–operatic literature. In spring 2010 he debuts at the American Spoleto Festival in the role of Friendly in the 18th-century ballad opera Flora. He has sung roles in Lully’s Armide with Houston’s Mercury Baroque; Purcell’s The Faerie Queen with Early Music Vancouver; Papageno in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte in Rotterdam and Utrecht. An excellent oratorio singer performing a remarkable range of repertoire, Mr. Duncan’s concerts include Haydn’s Die Schöpfung with the Orchestre symphonique de Québec; Haydn’s Die Jahreszeiten with the Calgary Philharmonic; Händel’s Messiah with the Toronto Symphony, and Portland Baroque; Händel’s La Resurrezione at Germany’s Halle Händel Festival. Mr. Duncan’s considerable gifts in the realm of art song have earned him prizes from the Naumburg, Wigmore Hall (London) and ARD (Munich) Competitions. He was also winner of the 2008 New York Oratorio Society Competition, 2007 Prix International Pro Musicis Award and the Bernard Diamant Prize from the Canada Council for the Arts. He holds music degrees from the University of British Columbia; Germany’s Hochschule für Musik (Augsburg) and Hochschule für Musik und Theater (Munich), Edith Wiens and Helmut Deutsch among his teachers. He is a founding member on the faculty of the Vancouver International Song Institute.
